BENGHAZI (Reuters) - Oil deals that are legal and in the interest of Libyan's citizens will be honoured, a member of the coalition that says it is ruling the eastern city of Benghazi on an interim basis said on Friday.

"The oil deals (with foreign firms) that are legal and to the benefit of the Libyan people we will keep," said Jammal bin Nour, a judge and member of the Feb. 17 coalition, which says it is temporarily running affairs in Libya's second city.

Many of Libya's key oil producing areas and terminals are located in the east of the OPEC member state, large parts of which are under the control of rebels seeking to oust veteran leader Muammar Gaddafi.
